8 Tips to Travelling During Pregnancy

If you're planning to take a trip while pregnant, you should check with your doctor to be sure it's safe for you to travel. Unless you have complications with your pregnancy, most women can travel safely.
Here are 8 travel tips to keep you safe and comfortable during pregnancy, courtesy of the American Pregnancy Association:

1. Travel during the second trimester is usually most comfortable -- after morning sickness has passed and the fatigue of the third trimester is still ahead.

2. Wear comfortable, loose clothing and comfortable shoes.

3. Take things to make you more comfortable, like a pillow from home and some snacks that satisfy you.

4. If you're driving, stop to get up and stretch often and take plenty of bathroom breaks.

5. Always take your prenatal records with you on the road.

6. Be safe: Wear your seat belt and follow safety instructions for whatever transportation you use.

7. Drinking enought water

8. If you on a long trip, every 2 hours you must take a rest about 5 minutes with walking or standing beside your car
